    Question Linking images to a placemark

    I am new to Google Earth.I have created and saved a Placemark successfully. I am trying to link the placemark to an image saved on my hard drive so that when I click on the placemark on the viewer the image pops up. I have used HTML code as follows:

    <IMG SRC="image.gif">

    However when I click on the placemark the image frame is empty.
    Can anyone please help with this.

    Keep the image frame up and give it a second to load

    You do realise that the image has to be online to access it like that? If you dont have a server try using something like Imageshack

    Thanks araT. How do you access an image that is on your hard drive? Is there a way or does the image have to be online?

    Thanks again!

    Must be online...

    Hi,

    first - it would be easier to help you if you post an example here.
    2nd - the URL must be correct: test it with your Browser
